The global communications service provider Epsilon has announced its deal to partner with SEAX on the deployment of its first Point of Presence (PoP) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
The deployment will expand Epsilon’s global reach in the Asia Pacific, and allow its customers and partners to interconnect at the new PoP using the Epsilon software-defined networking (SDN) platform called Infiny.
Based in Singapore, SEAX provides wholesale connectivity and cable landing services within Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore. On the other hand, Epsilon’s Infiny gives its users the ability to provide a suite of connectivity and intelligent communications services via a web-based portal, APIs and mobile apps.
With this partnership, Epsilon customers and partners can interconnect with an ecosystem of network operators in Malaysia. Service providers and enterprises in Malaysia will gain on-demand access to an interconnected mesh of over 100 data centres, cloud service providers and major Internet exchanges (IX) on Epsilon’s global network fabric.
“Malaysia is a rapidly growing economy focused on the transformation of digital infrastructure and ecosystems. With the launch of our new PoP in Kuala Lumpur, our customers and partners can now interconnect with local service providers to support their customers’ growth across the region,”
Jerzy Szlosarek, CEO at Epsilon.
The new PoP is expected to be operational by May 2019 and will be deployed in the Menara AIMS facility in Kuala Lumpur, which is connected to Epsilon Singapore network and onwards to international locations. Situated within the central business district in the capital city, the Menara facility is the number one data centre in Malaysia, housing over 40 service providers.
“Malaysian enterprises and service providers now have the power of connectivity at their fingertips. They can use Infiny to scale their business operations with on-demand access to Epsilon’s global network fabric. Our partnership with Epsilon reinforces our position as the preferred partner of choice in Singapore,”
Louis Teng, chief marketing officer at SEAX Singapore.
